Have a Happy Weekend

Friday at long last!  What are you all up to this weekend?  I’m hoping to finish up my spring cleaning and organizing.  I’m itching to throw a spring-time cocktail party.  The sun is shining brighter and longer and I think there’s no better way to welcome the warmth than with food you can eat with your fingers, a couple great cocktails and a bunch of great friends.  While I day dream about the smell of spring and the sound of clinking coupes, why don’t you take a gander at some fun things I found around the web this week?

How great does this interesting salad sound?  I can’t wait to try it.

Speaking of tiny apartments, this article is super helpful too.

A couple years ago, my friend Kayla introduced me to the life-changing brand Erin Condren.  Her coveted customizable LifePlanners ™ will change your life.  Luck for you, the planners are 50% off!  Hurry because I have no idea how long that discount will last.

There are few things in life I love more than taking a bubble bath at the end of the day.  Here are 11 ways to create the perfect bath.

The ideal bar cart.

I’ll be a Parks and Rec fan until my dying breath and the fact that I got Ann Perkins on this quiz warms my heart.

Target and Marimekko did a thing together!

I’ve been thinking about getting a little radio.  What do you think about this one?

The perfect accessory for your weekend getaway.

Ohhhh so that’s how you do a crown braid.

This art exhibit  is equal parts genius and hilarious.  Want more?  Here’s another exhibit by the same people.

Chip and Joanna Gaines from HGTV’s Fixer Upper and The Magnolia Market have finally come out with their own line of absolutely gorgeous paint.

Hope you enjoyed these as much as I did.  See you Monday my lovely readers!

Have a Wonderful Weekend

Hi everyone!  Sorry I’ve been gone but I decided to slip away for a weekend and take a spring break of sorts.  How’ve you been?  Any big plans for the weekend?  I plan to continue the job hunt and and get to work on a line up of some super great Monday morning posts for all of you.  Here are some links I’ve collected during some inordinately long layovers and wonderfully long coffee breaks.  Happy clicking!

Me and the boyfriend made this seriously fantastic curry dish when we got back from a weekend away.  It’s super simple and yields amazing leftovers for curried chicken salad.  Yum.

You absolutely HAVE to watch this truly hilarious skit with Christopher Walken from SNL. A friend showed it to me this past weekend and I don’t remember the last time I laughed that hard.

Speaking of googley eyes, here’s this.

I found this Always commercial the other day and couldn’t stop thinking about it.

Anyone who knows me knows that I have a (some would say) completely irrational fear of the zombie apocalypse.  Needless to say, I had to take this quiz to find out whether or not I would survive.  “You would survive longer than most” isn’t a sufficient answer for me.

I plan to watch this documentary this weekend.  Can’t. Wait.

Can we talk, really quickly, about how insanely gorgeous this leather jacket is? Okay, thanks.

You can eat your way to a better night’s sleep according to this article.

If you’re going through Making a Murderer withdrawals, this podcast just might be able to get you through.  Best listened to during the day if you live alone or just live in constant fear of murderers…

Check out all of these random yet awesome beauty tools.  I love the brush mat.

Hope you enjoy all these lovely links and I’ll meet you back here Monday. Sending you kisses and hugs and tons of coffee in mugs.

I’m Late, I’m Late…

for a very important [blog] date.  Sorry that I dropped the ball yesterday.  I don’t know about you guys but this week has been tough.  Hopefully the weekend will bring less stress and give some time for some much needed R&R.  How are all of you spending your next 48 hours of freedom?  Here are some interesting things I found around the web this past week.

Madewell teamed up with Daryl Kerrigan, creator of the New York- based brand Daryl K.  The whole collection has an easy,cool and casual 90’s rock vibe that is pretty obsession worthy.  Check it out here.

Liv Tyler has been a style and beauty icon of mine for a long long time.  Check out this killer interview she gave where she spills some of her greatest beauty secrets.

This past week I’ve felt seriously under qualified to be participating in adulthood.  This quiz helped reassure me a little with my 0% score.

I can barely put this book down.

These fragrances are seriously to die for.

This blog is great when you need a little inspiration for some productivity.

Does this salad not sound super amazing?

I’m so incredibly excited for this show to come back.

This impression of Rachel from Friends was crazy good.

Have such a lovely weekend and I’ll see you on Monday.

 

Sorry I’ve Been So Slow…

but hopefully this tiny little turtle on a leaf that’s totally pumped for the weekend will help you forgive me.  I promise that there will be a round of posts up to greet you first thing Monday morning but for now, here are some links that I’ve found around the web that I’ve been dying to share with anyone (read: everyone)…

I’ve been trying to become a morning person and this has been insanely helpful.

I watched the live performance last week and totally loved it.  Try this quiz and find out which Pink Lady you would be.

Kate Spade just rolled out their kitchen line and it’s kind of making me want to throw out ever single pot, pan and dish and replace them all with quippy casserole dishes and patterned plates.

I really loved this list (with recipes) of 44 Classic French Meals You Need to Try Before You Die.

Have a spa day at home and give this insanely easy DIY body scrub a try.

fun and thoughtful way to show a friend you’re thinking of them just in time for Galentine’s day.  (Leslie Knope would be all over this site.)

This is, without question, one of the strangest-sort-of-greatest-but-still-super-weird things I’ve ever seen.

Did this make your heart sing too?  I can’t wait.

How good does this cocktail sound?  (Created by my favorite cocktail connoisseur)

Have a lovely weekend my forgiving and wonderful readers.  See you Monday, I promise.
